My passion for photography started about eleven years ago: I was in South Africa and amazed by the beauty of the scenery. However, I couldn’t catch the beauty with the low quality digital point-and-shoot camera, especially in low-light situations. So I went to purchase a professional DSLR camera and was keen to figure out how to make great images. First it was all digital. And I didn’t stick to a particular genre or style. I was just experimenting and having fun, mostly while travelling.
Then in 2017 and 2018 I went through some life-changing moments (sad and happy). These experiences helped me to evolve and made me think about life differently. And as photography plays a major part in my life, my mindset and approach in photography have changed, too.
I believe that everyone should pursue what they are most passionate about in life (for the highest good of all) so that we can evolve into better human beings, spread goodness in the world and fulfill our purpose. I love exploring historic places and stunning landscapes with the camera. While capturing the mood and telling a story about a certain place or situation is where I feel truely alive.
Choosing to work with film cameras for my projects (since 2017) fits nicely to my vision. I embrace the limitations and simplicity of the gear. That’s an opportunity for me to slow down and be more creative. Of course I am a fan of the unique look that film produces: It’s far from being perfect:. It’s charismatic and distinctive. So is life.
Btw: I am the founder of a film photography community in Stuttgart (Germany) called “StuttgartAnalog”. If you are from this area, feel free to join our group on Facebook (click).
